Lizzie didn’t ask for a bike for Christmas but Santa thought she was ready to move up from the tricycle. What Santa didn’t realize is that the biggest difference between a tricycle and bicycle is that a tricycle does not have brakes. So when Lizzie used to pedal backwards, so did the tricycle. Now when she does it the bicycle comes to a quick stop. This was a bit frustrating to our little one at first and she quickly moved back to her trusty tricycle. After a little more encouragement and want to keep up with big sister she was back on a pedaling along. There were quite a few stops and requests for help to keep going but she was determined to not let the bicycle win.
